So, my mom finally decided yesterday that it was time to get out and go running with me, even if it is cold. She made a goal for herself that she will run a half-marathon on May 3rd.
This is quite ambitious for my mom. She is not a "runner." She is not built like a runner. She's built more for Scrabble.
However, I am her devoted training partner, and I'm going to whip her into shape! We need to build up her endurance because the longest distance she has ever run is a little over 4 miles. And we need to speed her up because she is a SLOW POKE! Soon she should have a sleek physique like my own (see picture).
So on the left is our widget that shows how far we've run together, and how far our last workout was. Goal: 13.1 miles (21 km), no walking, May 3rd! My friend Simba's mom ran a half marathon and made a blog about it, which is very interesting and helpful for my mom!
I love running. My favorite part is getting as far away as possible from the nearest garbage can, and taking a dump. Then my mom has to carry around the poopie bag while we run. I have mapped out our routes and strategically figured out the best locations for this.
